leaders of al qaeda are a lawful act of national self-defense. >> we only take these kinds of actions when there's an imminent threat, when capture is not feasible, and when we are confident that we're doing so in a way that's consistent with federal and international law. >> reporter: but the memo appears to allow greater leeway than the administration has publicly acknowledged. it says an imminent threat does not require the united states to have clear evidence that a specific attack on u.s. persons and interests will take place in the immediate future. the aclu is challenging obama's drone policy and is suing the u.s. government over awlaki's death on behalf of his family. >> it is a chilling document. it's, you know, it sets out the government's claimed authority to carry out the targeted killing of american citizens. but the limits are really vague and elastic, and it's very easy to see how they could be manipulated. >> reporter: nbc news analyst michael lighter, a former counterterrorism official who worked on the policy, says it reflects the reality of the murky war against al qaeda

. secretary, you said that it is not the department of defense's job to be 9-1-1, and so the question that struck me is, so when this happens and it happened so fast, and so quick, that when you responded in an hour, it may already be over by that time. are we relyingings on the home country -- relying on the home country to be 9-1-1? if so, as you go through what they're providing to us, you mentioned some are not up to our -- are not up to the quality of others at this time. how are you making that decision that we have people in harm's way and we are lying on a -- relying on a host nation that might not be up to taking care of our people? >> you know, obviously it's very important that, you know, the ambassador determined what is the situation and whether or not, you know, there's a need for action. i mean, the 9-1-1 is basically the host country that has to respond quickly and provide immediate security around. if that's not there. you have to have security within the embassy itself. that f that isn't there. you have to intelligence giving you a heads up it's a dangerous situation
